Lyrics: Waiting for the Last Leaf to Fall :: Louise Schutz

Waiting for the Last Leaf to Fall

WAITING FOR THE LAST LEAF TO FALL
Words by Louise Schutz, Music by C.J. Noble, Jr.

VERSE 1:

I’m feeling like a blade of grass
Being cut down by my past
Never allowed to grow
Poking at all the holes
Waving goodbye to the life I knew
Trying to fix myself for you.

VERSE 2:

Poison my body with chemicals
Limit me to your color code.
Green is new – yellow is old,
Bury me under all the snow
You always try to keep me clean
But you never see the in-between.

REFRAIN:

I’m winter waiting for the last leaf to fall
I’ll bring about a storm to end it all,
Winter waiting for the last leaf to fall
I’ll bring about a storm to end it all.

BRIDGE:

The voices kept screamin’ louder, calling my name.
Ignore it, ignore it, ignore it, it’s just a game.
I can’t breathe, I’m reaching out
They’re drowning me in my self-doubt

VERSE 3:

I just wanted you to be yourself
Throw it out into the air
Paint yourself a brand-new life
Show [me] that you care.
Once I let go, I’m [so] afraid
There’s no turning back

REFRAIN:

I’m winter waiting for the last leaf to fall
I’ll bring about a storm to end it all,
Winter waiting for the last leaf to fall
I’ll bring about a storm to end it all.
